Maksim Gorky was a very talented Russian author who lived in the epoch of communism and devoted his stories to the life of workers and peasants who do everything for their country, work 20 hours a day and do not even think about themselves but only about their country. Readers can see such examples of sacrifice in each story of the collection called Through Russia. Unfortunately the real talent of Gorky is not fully discovered. Moreover, he was even a bot forgotten when the communism failed. However, the spirit of his stories and their special power cannot be denied. So Through Russia is a very good chance to re-discover this outstanding Russian novelist. All of his works are based on his personal experience as he traveled a lot around Russia and saw a number of moments from life of simple people. Thus, Gorky's books are not close to life, they are life themselves.
